Ryan is no Noah.

So I have always been a Ryan Gosling fan, there really is no denying this. I thought he was great on the Mickey Mouse Club (which I watched religiously...not even kidding), so dorkily funny in Remember the Titans, a little disturbing in Murder by Numbers (and even more disturbing when he started dating Sandra Bullock...okay moving past that), but obviously his performance in The Notebook takes the cake. That whole movie was just amazing and you basically had to love him and Rachel.

Okay but getting to my point: Ryan Gosling has come a ways from his day as Noah and you have to give him some major credit for it. He was so good in Half Nelson (heck he even got an Oscar nomination for it), he was a pretty kick ass lawyer in Fracture, and Lars and the Real Girl just looks all around quirky with a dash of some quality acting. I just love seeing stars start out young and actually make it as adult actors without loads of baggage and unnecessary drama, it's a nice change.

The only drama that Ryan seems to have these days is that he broke up with real life girlfriend Rachel McAdams. Sad, but true. But man, what he says in his GQ article is just precious. You gotta love the guy:
“I mean, God bless The Notebook. It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.”

And on top of it all, the man is making scruffy look good. His new GQ spread looks amazing and classic and I love it. Props to Ryan.

Oh my goodness, I just love him. This might be a Canadian thing (I'm not actually sure if it was a Canadian show, but it was dumb and cheesy so i'm thinking it probably was), but did you ever watch Breaker High? It was on ages ago (as in, I think I was probably 13), but Ryan Gosling was in it and he was just so cute and wonderful. My love for him will never die.

And now you've got me wanting to watch The Notebook!

Ahhh Alana beat me to it.

The first time I saw him in a movie, I thought "he's from Breaker High!" I loved that show.. I wonder where it went.
